Rochester Chamber Statement on Sentry Safe Closing

Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bob Duffy released the following statement regarding the final day of operations at Sentry Safe:

Duffy said, “Today is a tough day for our region.  As a family-owned business, Sentry Safe served our community for three generations, providing jobs and producing high-quality products.  The closing of Sentry Safe in Rochester and the loss of manufacturing jobs to Mexico is a sad reflection of the economic situation across our country. However, Rochester has shown its resiliency over the years when faced with similar job cuts at other companies.  Rochester Chamber and our RBA Staffing division have worked with Sentry Safe and Master Lock since last year’s closing announcement to find interested workers new jobs in our area and we continue to do so.”
